they do. now house speaker john boehner says president obama is out to annihilate the republican party. we'll talk about all that with new hampshire senator kelly ayotte and our political panel in just a few moments. >> also, big time golfers phil mickelson, tiger woods, lebron james and derek jeter are all supply siders. we'll explain that later this hour. >> i wasn't involved in the talking points process. as i understand it, as i've been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the state department all participated to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available. >> that of course was secretary of state clinton today on capitol hill saying she had no role in susan rice's false talking points on the benghazi consulate attack. but will we ever find out why ambassador rice denied the terrorist attack and misled the public saying this on "meet the press." >> what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. >> and will we ever get a full answer on exactly what happen
. what president obama has proposed to do on gun reform is very popular, even among republican voters. when you ask them about the things that the president's proposing, pretty much republicans think these things are good ideas, we ought to be doing them, they are in favor. and then the same "washington post" poll asked republicans, okay, broadly speaking, do you like what president obama is proposing on gun reform? and republicans said no, we hate it. after they said they support all the individual proposals, they said, well, do you like the guy who's proposing all these individual proposals that you liked? no, we hate those ideas. and that is insane. they like all the component parts of it. they like all these ideas. but then when these ideas that they like are proposed, they say they are against them because the person proposing them is president obama. that is insane. that is mindless. right? how do you make constructive policy in that kind of environment? people support the policy until they hear who else supports it and then they think they might be against it. how do you make p
by congressional republicans, president obama acknowledged the gulf separating him from his adversaries on capitol hill. >> i recognize there are profound differences in this room, but i just want to say thank you for your service, and i want to thank your families for their service because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives, i know that all have us serve because we believe we can make america for future generations. >> the question still remains. can he actually implement it? e.j., my friend, it's rare we get to see you in the flesh. i go to you first on this. there's been a lot of analysis about whether that speech was kind of almost a rejoinder to reagan's first inaugural. a, what do you make of that, and, b, in terms of actually moving this policy forward, can the president do it given the climate in washington these days? >> i think the answer is yes, and the question is how far forward can he move it? i think the critique of this speech that somehow the president was in the face of conservatives, yes, he did make a philosophical argument. he did answer some of the conse
obama the republicans overwhelmingly retained their house seats. sick and tired of the congressional gridlock steve cohen of memphis introduced a bill this week which would require states to use independent redistricting commissions in drawing those maps. here we in to talk about his bill and what he expects during president obama's second term, is congressman steve cohen. welcome to "the war room"." >> thank you good to be with you. >> michael: do you think they would or could pass this bill. >> whether they would is doubtful but it's an important bill because we have gridlock and the reason for that is too many districts are concerned about the primary and the far right and far left and they don't have to work with the whole community or the center, because of the partisan redistricting which we have in most states are drawn up just to suit their people or make them overwhelmingly ohio. ohio went for the president. ohio went to sherrod brown but yet 12 of the 16 districts drawn up by the ohio legislature were republican. that's not right. it does not reflect the will of the people.
saying she believes collin powell a republican is acting in concert with the obama white house to support some of the president's positions. miss laura pointed out that powell's raising the race card when mr. obama is criticized. now the general is echoing the obama administration's position on voter i.d. >> the republican party should be a party that says we want everybody to vote and make it easier for people to vote and give them a reason to vote for the party and not find ways to keep them from voting at all. >> in our efforts to protect voting rights and to prevent voting fraud, we will be vigilant and we will be strong. but let me be very clear. we will not allow political pretext to disenfranchise american citizens of their most precious right. >> here now barack and hard place duo monica crowley and alan colmes. do you think it's a coincidence that collin powell has taken the positions. >> i'm not a big conspiracy guy. >> i'm not a conspiracy guy. >> you know, other people say the same things by the way. by the way, i had oral surgery. >> you know, i just didn't notice anything. y
obama said he honed his re-election would break the republican fever of obstructionism, but even he admits that hasn't happened, and now paul ryan says the president wants to destroy the republican party. usual of whatting "hardball," the place for politics. as you a. would you take it? well, there is. [ male announcer ] it's called ocuvite. a vitamin totally dedicated to your eyes, from the eye care experts at bausch + lomb. as you age, eyes can lose vital nutrients. ocuvite helps replenish key eye nutrients. ocuvite has a unique formula not found in your multivitamin to help protect your eye health. now that's a pill worth taking.

of the republican party. losing 25 senate seats this year -- president obama only got 51% of the vote. the economy is looking great. a lot of democratic incumbents looked people ribble. the senate cannot be gerrymandered. it looked like a clean a snapshot of the country. for republicans to win 8 waterboarded -- while democrats one -- republicans will 8 and democrats won 25, that is dangerous. we need to figure out what went wrong in 2012. i'm not for endless naval gazing. there are plenty of fights to be had. where can we cooperate with president obama? in some ways, you lose an election, and you think about it for a few months. and you get back right on the horse and try to start writing again and figure out what we believe and and what fights we want to have and what policies we want to -- want to propose. host: politico wrote about you -- what have you been doing? guest: it is interesting to learn that is what i have been doing. i can start all i want. other people have to decide what they want to stand for. host: it says that bill crystal and his allies have been talking about starting reformi
reelected, obama in all probability would face a daunting challenge of working with republican majorities in house and possibly the senate. what lessons might obama learn from history where he reelected? confronted with a congress dominated by republicans, further complicating the challenge is the apparent disappearance in the spirit of compromise, which has actually been a mainstay of legislation through the nations history with one very momentous exception. members of congress and the south would not compromise on the subject of the expansion of slavery, other than states defeated and the civil war institute. we have heard much about the impending battle between the president and congress over the extension of the bush tax cuts, raising the death on it and potential of automatic cut and spend name. the necessity of resolving these issues is the chairman or nokia refers to as the fiscal cliff. it is likely these political decisions will be given brief extension so that the next president and congress will be saddled with making the decision. as a second term president, obama would face o
, the aggressive barack obama and the worried republicans. plus scoops and predictions chris: welcome back. no less than "the new york times" has called president obama's inaugural address aggressive. we can all agree the president spoke clearly. >> preserving our individual freedom ultimately requires collective action. for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well in a growing many barely make it. chris: this speech has taken a week to gel. and the geling has suggesting that the republicans have a choice. either they go along with the president on some things, try to improve on immigration, on guns, hit their mark on these bills, or they stand back and play protest politics. what are they going to do? >> i found an interesting poll, "the wall street journal" and he made it seem maybe we should try to make legislation better. try to have some input on things. i think there's still a split among republicans how much to do that. i know there are a lot of conservative republicans who sit there and say we walked away from health care, what a mistake.
that obama wants to end the reagan era. but the second point is, can obama split the republican party? to some extent he did on the fiscal cliff vote. he has a lot of issues like this. immigration and gun control. to mark's point. the president went out there and tested what he believes is his vision. this first term was about being a sen trist and now he is not held back by a political test. that is where he sees the second term. as far as republicans, we will be broken if we allow ourselves to be broken. the president has the platform of the presidency and he has organization. republicans have to look at where they get a better platform. ideas like more government and an economy that doesn't rely on government and whether or not we can do that with a greater organizational ability. that was the essence of ray again. he went out and made it more marketable in the middle. he talked about free enterprise. >> he sold that to a part of the electorate. >> what obama is doing is interesting to me. he is quoting the founding fathers. all men are created equal. that they are entitled to life
president obama a big legal setback tonight and given republicans who charged that he acted improperly when he made some job appointments a huge victory. this is about what presidents get to do when congress is out of town, and this could affect all future presidents. our justice correspondent, pete williams, is with us from our newsroom with the details tonight. pete, good evening. >> reporter: brian, if this ruling stands, it will virtually eliminate a power that presidents of both parties have used for over a century. the constitution gives the president power, quote, to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the senate. president obama invoked that recess appointment power a year ago to fill vacancies that senate republicans refused to act on. three spots on the national labor relations board and richard cordray to run the new consumer financial protection bureau. but today a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in washington said that power can only be used between the end of one session of congress and the beginning of another, not during any congressiona
second term. barack obama avoided the words "democrat" and "republican." but he's made it clear he wants americans of different political stripes to work together. he laid out his vision for his next four years in his second inaugural address. obama was sworn in in public, something he had done in private the day before. former president, state governors and members of congress braved the cold alongside him. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of the president of the united states. >> obama described his priorities for his second term from the domestic economy and diplomacy to climate change. he talked about values and principles common to all americans. he said prosperity must rest on the shoulders of the rising middle class. >> no single person can train all the math and science teachers we'll need to equip our children for the future. or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. now, more than ever, we must do these things together
." host: mr obama was less explicit but his emphasis was on the virtues. patricia, republican. caller: hello. i have a question for you. you get black, white, no matter what. when he says that, that is so true. i mean, we all are created equally. but my question for mr. obama is he swore, he used martin luther king's traveling bible, and he swore on lincoln's bible also. correct? host: that is what i heard. caller: my question to you is, did he read either of those two blocks and comprehend what he wrote? when he said that everybody should have a chance, why is he abortion? give that child a chance. am i correct? host: what does that mean it to you? caller: let's get rid of abortion. the gaze he spoke about, he did not comprehend what he read in the bible. maybe he needs help in that area. and every man is equal. let's give these children who are aborted, let's no longer let it go on. let's give them a chance. correct? host: ok, patricia. we will go to mary and next. caller: i thought he did a great speech yesterday. i think what a lot of people are missing the point on was he was not
party. so you have seen, it's true, a republican party that has shifted to the right. barack obama has managed through issues like gun control and the right through organizations like the n.r.a. to paint them as out of step with the mainstream of america more successfully than the right has managed to depict the president as being out of step with the mainstream of america. chris: i want to ask you about the cover of a magazine, has the country moved more towards the gun control position or not because of the horror at newtown? >> i think they've moved some to that position. the n.r.a. still has a stranglehold, but the president can use the extremism of the n.r.a., who are acting like a bunch of crazies that's days to help sell the rest of his agenda. chris: this is too far out, and let's take a look at this right now. >> are the president's kid more important than yours? than why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? chris: when you bring the kids of the president in, who are protected against kidnappi

about obama, the birtherism, we'll get to it later, more than a third of republicans think he was born somewhere else still. >> the problem -- i mean, bless peggy noonan. she wants to come in from on high and -- >> don't be jealous of another columnist. >> i'm not. i understand her intention but she doesn't have a clear diagnosis of the problem. 6 out of 7 of the republican presidential primary candidates last year were basically yahoo candidates who believed in any one of these -- >> remind me their names. >> i don't know if i remember, cain, perry, bachmann -- >> santorum. >> trump was in and out. newt gingrich, mr. colonial marxist, mitt romney flirted with it but stayed away from it. when the house republicans came into power two years ago, the tea partiers, one of the first things they did was to introduce a bill trying to redefine rape. so it's not just a bunch of yahoos out in new mexico or virginia with transvaginal probes. it is the heart of the party. >> and paul ryan -- >> you remind me of too much. let's go to jindal. here is a guy who is trying to be a leader. last night a
that the republican party had to start taking barack obama seriously. he means to change america in fundamental ways as he sees it. the proper response to such a man is not -- was that he is not a muslim or he's a kenyan or working out his feels of coloniali colonialism. it didn't hurt him, it hurt the republicans. can the gop in washington for now develop those things? what do you think? she's saying you're deluded yourself with the nonsensical charges of birtherism and it's hurt you, not him. >> i agree with you, peggy noonan is a tremendous writer, i don't agree with much much of what he says. but here's the thing. they're not listening to the editorial page, they have been fed 30 or 40 years the insanity or the belief that their views are absolutely right. the idea of calling democrats marxists and being extreme on abortion that is not right, it's fundamentally american, more american than the other side. >> the polls say you're right. >> you can't change the cake by changing the frosting. the problem in the republican party is not the political or the intellectual class -- >> what are you, dan

challenge of working with republican majority in house and possibly innocent. what lessons might obama learned from history were he reelected? confronted with a congress dominated by republicans, further complicating his challenge is that appearance, disappearance of the spirit of compromise which is so been a mainstay of legislation throughout the nation's history, with one very momentous exception. members of congress in the south would not compromise on the subject of the expansion of slavery, 11 states seceded and the civil war ensued. we have heard much about the impending battle between the president and congress over the extension of the bush tax cuts, raising the debt limit, and the potential of automatic cuts in spending. necessity of resolving these issues is what chairman frank he refers to as the fiscal cliff. -- chairman bernanke. it's likely the decision will be given brief extensions so that the next president and congress will be saddled with making the decision. as a second term president, obama would face obstacles rarely experienced by a chief executive returning to
is an understatement. president obama is dealing with everything from cabinetand benghazi.to the fall-out from his inauguration speech. and then there's the debt ceiling. dull. no one was particularly surprised today when republicans began bashing speech. he offered a liberal vision - touching on preserving the social welfare safety net. some thought it overly partisan and aggressive. >> "the era of liberalism is back.unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech" congress to pass tighter gun the presidential inaugural celebrations came to end. and president obama iscoming up. his broad and ambitious agenda for his second term. and why republicans probably won't be making it any easier during the next four the investigation underway. into what caused this massive fire at an airforce base yesterday. the 40th anniversary of the so far president obama has laid out a broad and ambitious agenda for hisbut signs are scant negotiating with republicans will be any easier for the next four years. on tuesday the inaugural celebration was capped off cathedral in washington. now the president begins a se

. and lastly, government programs. president obama took a shot at republicans when he said this about entitlements. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> i'll take that poll. the public's predominantly in favor here. when we polled on medicare, 54% said it only needed minor modifications if anything. joining us david corn and michael scherer. gentlemen, thank you. i didn't know this until you put it all together. i have a sense that on the right if you're a moderate positions like these polls say, you're considered a liberal. if you're in the middle, the right sees you as the left. it's true. what do you think? >> well, i think the right is screaming that this is a liberal speech which should come as no surprise. barack obama has always been a progressive democrat. a pragmatist as a government manager, but progressive in his values. >> i know you're on the progressive si
the republican plan, even though president obama won the popular vote by 5 million and currently won over by 120 votes in the electoral college. in the republican fan the republican candidate would woo have been. is this so controversy that even some republicans are saying, well it seems a little embarrassing. here is pat mullin in virginia who said changing the electoral college rules in vow is not at all on my list of priorities. people get mad when you try to subvert democracy and have someone who did not win the popular vote become the president, not that that would ever happen in a presidential election or anything. but reince priebus thinks, hmm we can't seem to win elections otherwise. all of a sudden it's an interesting idea to him. it's something that a lot of states that have been consistently blue that are fully controlled red ought to be looking at. meaning, even though these states are voting for democrats we have found a way to control them politically and maybe we should look at making that permanent. again, that would appear to be anti-democratic. let's talk to a couple of expert

society, a group of modern republicans. he ascribes an awfully sinister motive to president obama these days considering the fact that the republican party hasn't needed much help in its recent collapse. boehner is not alone. house majority whip kevin mccarthy sees the same plot by the democrats. >> this person's main goal is to continue to try to break the republican party. he's out of touch with where america is at with what he's trying to do. >> come on, kevin. all of a sudden the democrats are sitting back in the back room conniving how to take the republicans apart. considering the republicans made it their mission to stop obama at all costs, it's fairly rich they accuse obama of using the same tactics against them. feehery, you're already laughing because the idea that the republicans think there's a big cabal of democrats that sit around and meet and they're saying why don't we get the republicans to say stupid things about black america, against latinos, come out against immigration reform and screw up any chance of being a majority party again, and it's all the democrats.
and all groups with a broad love of hip-hop. republicans are watching. and just after obama's second election, republican senator marco rubio of florida, a possible future presidential candidate, told gq magazine he's long enjoyed rap music. make no mistake who that's aimed at. but some political observers wonder what does the hip-hop community want? >> we know what the gay and lesbian community asks for as a demographic. we know what the latino community asks for around immigration. what does the hip-hop community ask for? so when jay-z gave a fund-raiser for the president with his wife beyonce, what was the ask? what did he ask for in terms of issues? >> reporter: he says the hip-hop community does have issues like high unemployment in minority communities and education. other things he'd ask. >> first, i would ask the president of the united states give a shout out to the hip-hop community. >> shannon travis, cnn, washington. >> well, they're going to have their chance to see what happens. so here is the thing. it's pretty nice out here tonight. it's going to be chilly out here to
of budget battles with the obama administration. >> reporter: republican congressman paul ryan said republicans and conservatives will need prudence to deal with president obama's second term. part of that, he says, is showing voters what the president's agenda looks like once it's been implemented. >> in the president's first term we argued against big government in theory. and in his second term, we'llng practice. obama care is no longer a 2,000 page bill. now it's 13,000 pages of regulations and its growing. it's being implemented. this year the law will restrict our ability to use flexible spending accounts. it will raise taxes on life saving medical devices. >> reporter: ryan, possible a presidential contender in 2016, said republicans should be prepared for the president to try to "de legitimize them," but urged them to be smart. >> we'll need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we'll have to reject the president's proposals. that time might come more than once. sometimes we'll have to make them better. the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyie
the first obama term saying the number one priority was to defeat the president. did the republicans owe the americans a more cooperative tone at the start of the second term? >> i'm looking forward to a time we can all work together. i hope the president hit the reset button for russia during the first term, i hope he hits the reset button with the republican party. a time with divided government, that's when you can do the most big things, i hope the president and the republicans work together to do something important for the country in terms of our debt, entitlements, crucial we do that for kids and grandkids. >> both parties have internal divisions too. your party is trying to sort out mitt romney's loss in the election. a debate, some conservatives don't want a new immigration policy that allows those who came illegally to stay. some democrats don't want to touch medicare, social security. if you have a grand bargain who is the circuit breaker so everybody can talk together and things get done as opposed to confrontation? >> well, and this is the time to do it. there are big things
to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college football coach lou holtz. >> about 9:30 i get this text, the country is overwith. we're not doing this again. i already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he came in to speak to our 34 new members. and before he went over to talk to them, he came to my office. he is moaning and groaning. i said, lou, would you stop? we're americans. we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> and that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> and now for a look at the national weather, here is bill karins with the forecast. it's cold, right? >> lou holtz isn't happy all that's come out either. here's what we're dealing with out there this morning. snow has made its presence in the washington, d.c. area. we haven't had a lot over this winter period, especially think morning from washington, d.c., southward driving through virginia to fredericksburg, al
